Feast in the Field 11 – June 12

2015FITF-Tables350x200Slow Food St. Louis presents the 11th Annual Feast in the Field on Sunday, June 12th from 4-8pm at La Vista CSA Farm near Godfrey, Illinois.

Feast in the Field is an intimate evening of farm-to-fork dining located on picturesque La Vista Farm on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. With 255 acres of woods, pastures, and gardens, it is the perfect setting to enjoy the rich bounty of local food and beverages. This event celebrates our region’s innovative passionate farmers, La Vista Farm, and their mission dedicated to good food and ecological stewardship.

Guests will enjoy an extended cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception at 4pm followed by an exquisite dinner prepared by some of the region’s nationally recognized and award winning chefs. Dinner will feature a bounty of locally and sustainably sourced ingredients, harvested from La Vista and other small St. Louis area farms. Local beer, wine and spirits will be featured during both the reception and meal.

Space is very limited for this dinner on the farm, so purchase your tickets early! As in past years, watch for menu highlights and announcements just prior to this bountiful, seasonal farm dinner.

Feast in the Field funds the Slow Food St. Louis Small Farm Biodiversity Micro-Grant Program. To date, the program has distributed more than $62,000 to local farms to assist with growing heirloom varieties and heritage breed animals that are not produced in the St. Louis region. The project is a financial investment in our local farms and our local food culture. Click on the image below for tickets.
